Hudson Valley Product Photography – Cosmetics

Hudson Valley Product Photography

If you missed my previous post about Hudson Valley product photography of Kiss My Face cosmetics then check that out for some more photos and information. I also recently photographed their entire suncare line, which is pretty awesome since it’s all natural. It took me a little while, but I finally worked out the kinks with my lighting style and technique so I think these photos came out great. It’s a fairly elaborate lighting setup but it makes the products really look appealing. Don’t you agree?

Hudson Valley Product Photographer – Natural Cosmetics Photography

Hudson Valley Product Photographer – Natural Cosmetics Photography

As a Hudson Valley product photographer I’ve been lucky enough lately to be doing some Hudson Valley product photography for Kiss My Face. In case you don’t know, Kiss My Face is a natural cosmetics company located in Gardiner, NY. I’m thrilled to have them as a client because I believe in their philosophy and they happen make great products. If you care about what you put onto your body and into the environment then check them out. You can find their products in health food stores and through their website. Below are a couple of photos from my first shoot with them. This is their olive oil soap, which is great. I chose to shoot it on a wood surface to emphasize the natural qualities of it. Next is one of their gift baskets available through their website. I photographed a number of these and had a fun time styling them. If you’re looking for a Hudson Valley product photographer then give me a call.

Industrial Product Photography – an exercise in patience

Industrial Photographer in New York

I recently completed an industrial product photography shoot for Signal Transformer. What I thought would be a simple shoot turned out to be more difficult than I expected. It was a group photo of the various transformers that they make for trade show display. They turned out to be much smaller than I imagined so it required quite a bit of patience with the styling, composition and lighting. I used one of my macro lenses and these parts are smaller than you pinky nail, so you can imagine the toil that went into the shoot. In the end I came up with an image that both I and the client were happy with. I guess all my experience as a food photographer is coming in handy in other applications. Who knew that I would one day be doing side work as an industrial photographer. Below is the final result. Let me know what you think.

Mount Gulian Wedding – Melissa & Doni

Mount Gulian Wedding – Melissa & Doni

I’ve known Melissa since college where we graduated from the same photography program. It’s always a great compliment to me when another artist or photographer asks me to shoot their wedding. It’s also a great responsibility and makes me a little nervous, but I like to use it as a challenge to make fantastic images. They live in Brooklyn but I had met Doni a couple of times before and I knew that he was a really easy going and down to earth guy. When I heard about their Mount Gulian wedding plans I couldn’t wait.

Melissa contacted me in the spring about her fall Mount Gulian wedding. No problem, plenty of time to plan a wedding. One caveat; she was planning on hiking the entire Appalachian Trail with her dad and would be off the grid all summer. Despite logging some serious miles in the months prior to her wedding Melissa and Doni managed to throw a terrific party with plenty of hand made touches at Mount Gulian Historic Site in Beacon, NY. Bridge Creek Catering did a fantastic job with the setup, the food and the service. Overall it was a great wedding and I’m happy to have shared this special day with one wonderful couple.

Alissa & Mike’s Mohonk Wedding

Alissa and Mike contacted me about their intimate wedding at Mohonk and I was hooked. Rather then have everyone they know come to the wedding they decided that they would just have close family for a weekend at Mohonk Mountain House and then have a big reception party in their hometown in Pennsylvania. They chose Mohonk because of their love of nature and the outdoors. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding, perfect in every way.
